What did you use to make this look so realistic?

I had to make a base so I could print the 'hand' because it's wrist is not flat. I made a thin 1.5mm rectangle just big enough to place the hand in. Did it in netfab btw. I exported both files. The thin platform needed to visit Sketchup to get trued to the Z plane. Then I imported both into Makerware. Put both on the platform and lined them up. I then saved as is and opened it in RepG. Sliced with sk50, sailfish r16 defaults, .2mm layer, 1 shell, 10% infill, 235C/110 temps and a 80mm/sec rate. Repeiter told me it would do a major bridge between the 6th and 10th layer (bottom of the hand/wrist). Next time the palm face right-left and not front back. So I paused at Z and trimmed off the bad strands. (Thank you Sailfish) The next layer set it all down and all was good. Three hours late a very nice and detailed hand was done, but it's yellow. Next one will be tan and I'll glue on a hook to hang it from a closed car window.

Cool, do you have a photo?

Yep, it's the yellow one in 'I made one'

Looks amazing!
